The President and CEO of AIMS, Thierry Zomahun, while speaking to Julius Bizimungu from New Times about the Quantum Leap Africa (QLA), said that the future of data science lies in Africa. Adding that the continent has all it takes to become a world leader in the quantum revolution.
The following is an excerpt of Bizimungu’s from New Times interview with President and CEO of AIMS, Thiery Zomahun:
You established the global AIMS headquarters here in Rwanda and part of it was to have the Quantum Leap Africa Research Center. This …read more
